  1. It would be nice if we could see which of our facebook friends are actively playing the game, like in words with friends.

    I don't like having to send them a request via Facebook, and would rather send them a request directly through the game.

      If you go to New Game..then Friends and then Facebook you should see a list of your facebook friends. If it says Play by them they are already players…otherwise it will say invite. You will also see FB friends that are already playing on the All Players tab. If it is not doing this for you please send in a note to support.

      • Look carefully -The hint word option is faulty!

        Next time you use a hint word and it tells you 'there are no possible words to play', you should notice that a hint is still deducted from your hint box. Clearly this shouldn't happen because you weren't even given a hint! So please support this idea!

          The hint is not deducted when this message is displayed. Some people use it to verify there are not words at the end when they’ve looked for a while.

        • Why are words such as 'OK' and 'DJ' not valid?

          Vote for this and add comments if there are any words which aren't valid which you think should be.

            We are always happy to take word suggestions. You can also send them to support@PeopleFun.com. At a minimum we would like to see the word in a couple of well known online dictionaries. If you can direct us to where you found them that is always helpful.

            In the case of these 2 words…both seem to still considered abbreviations rather than words. OK for Okay and DJ for disc jockey.

                  Are there any alerts to let you know a move has been made when you are doing something else ?

                    There are push notifications. its possible you answered “Don’t Allow” when that question was asked. You can always turn them on and make adjustments to them in your Settings app. Just open Settings..tap Notifcations…scroll down to Word Chums and you can turn on the alerts there.

                  • Search by username

                    I don't have Facebook and would like an option to search for users by username HELP

                      You cannot exactly search for users by username but if you have someones user name you can select New Game, Friends and then user name and enter it there to start a game with the.

                        This usually happens near the end of the game when there are not many letters/words left to play. The best word happens whenever you get the best possible score on your turn.

                      • Chumbots

                        I see you can get achievements by playing chumbots but I don't know how to play against a chumbot. So how do you know how to get a game started against one?

                          The latest update is now available in the App Store. If you are interested in single player it is now available. Go to new game and start a game against computer. If you are looking for more ways to earn coins there is also a free coins option where you can earn coins from some of our sponsor services.

                                The W-L next to each chum on your leaderboard is your lifetime record against that player. It is not reset weekly. There is not one beside your Chum since you don’t play against yourself. Your personal lifetime record is found by tapping your chum.

                                The W-L is also not tracked until a person is on your leaderboard. So the first game with a Random player does not end up on the list. A person joins your list whenever you rematch with them or start a non-random game.

                                  We use a standard word list for validation called ENABLE2k. People and Chumbots use the exact same list..except some of the easier Chumbots can’t use parts of the list. It’s used by quite a few games and you can search on it if interested. However it only has words and not definitions. We look definitions up via a service called Wordnik.com which does not have nearly as many definitions. In an upcoming update we are going to research many of the most unusual words and create a list of their definitions we can use in game.  Scrabble’s list is copyrighted so we cannot copy it. The link for their list is below in case you are curious. If you would like to suggest words to add or delete just send us a support request.Thanks for playing and spreading the word!This is the link for Scrabble’s official list (They have access to…

                                    I put our knowledge base article on this below.

                                    The system will delete random games after 7 days and other games after 11.

                                    When it’s not your turn and you would like to remove a game from your game list you can select “Remove Game” from the game menu. When your are viewing a game board the game menu is in the top right corner. You will no longer see the removed game on your list after selecting remove game. However if the player does make a turn before the auto resign time period is reached it will come back on your list.

                                    You may also Block a player from starting future games with you or chatting to you. Tap their chum in the game screen and swipe up on the Stats screen to see the “Block” button. You can also block them by tapping their name in your leader…

                                        You currently must have a iPhone/iPad or newer iPod touch. Then you just search for Word Chums in the App Store and download it there.

                                        We are working on a Facebook/PC version but it will take several months more of development.

                                          Try shutting Word Chums down completely and then restart it. To shut it down go to any home screen on your device (a screen where you see all your app icons). Double tap the home button on the front of device. You should see a row of apps at bottom of screen. Assuming Word Chums is one of those…tap and hold Word Chums until the apps wiggle and you see a minus sign. The tap on the minus sign on Word Chums to shut it down. Now try to open Word Chums again and see if it works.

                                          If it repeatedly freezes up or the same action causes it to freeze or crash every time go ahead and send a note to support.
